Meet the editors of Better Homes and Gardens magazine.

Justin W. Hancock, senior gardening editor, BHG.com, aka ^jh

It's my job to: Cultivate our little corner of the interwebs and make it a little greener.

What's better: your home or your garden? Garden, by far. Though with the number of plants I keep inside during the winter, I'm not sure people can always tell the difference. :)

Book that changed your life and why: Bunnicula -- it's the first book I remember reading and part of the reason I love rabbits (even when they're in my garden).

What's always on your to-do list? Procuring snacks. Even when I'm eating something, my mind wanders off to what the next bit of yummy will be.

Why do you love Twitter? It's a quick and easy way to get a little of everything I love and be introduced to new cool people. Plus, I can turn it off whenever I feel like I need more quiet plant time.

Who do you follow on Twitter? I love the gardening vibes from @29mingardener, @paigeworthy, @suzimccoygmg, @billcalkins, and @gpbuzz

Joanna Linberg, assistant home design editor, Better Homes and Gardens, aka ^jl

It's my job to: Look at paint chips, chat up designers, and get the home design stories to the printer on time!

What's better: your home or your garden? My "garden." There's not a lot a small patio attached to a townhome can do, but it can sure host a doozy of a potted herb garden!

Book that changed your life and why: A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers. It's not for everyone and, really, it's not even for me (I usually bury myself in British classics), but it dared me to try creative writing

What's always on your to-do list? Make an appointment for a haircut. I'm as lazy as can be about my hair.

Rachel Martin, food editor, BHG.com, aka ^rm

It's my job to: Make you hungry with mouthwatering photographs and recipes.

What's better: your home or your garden? My home. I need some help from Justin on my garden. Hello, weeds!

Give us the story behind the most interesting item on your desk: It's a big, ugly clear plastic mug that I've had since college. I already have two pencil holders in my desk, so why do I need a third? Because I've had it since I left for college and for some strange reason I can't bring myself to get rid of it.

Book that changed your life and why: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Lots of books have been written about WWII, but how many have been narrated by the Grim Reaper with a little German girl as the protagonist living in Munich with her adopted family who's hiding a Jewish man in the basement? Amazing.

It's my job to: Photograph Halloween candies in April, talk Thanksgiving turkey in June, and think about Christmas trees in August (I'm the Holidays editor, so it's all holidays, all year). I also cover weddings, birthdays, and other ridiculously fun celebrations.

What's better: your home or your garden? I have a big comfy plum-color couch that makes my home a favorite hangout spot.

Give us the story behind the most interesting item on your desk: I have a framed picture of my husband's and my feet from our wedding. He was wearing a cast for his then-broken foot.

Book that changed your life and why: I felt like I needed a journal next to me to write down the absolutely beautiful language and phrases in Memoirs of a Geisha.

Why do you love Twitter? It gets rid of the exposition and gets right to the point.
